📚 Lesson Plan #35

Ancient Sea Creatures, Giant Vacuums and the Key to Longevity

Happy Tuesday esteemed educators!

We’re coming to you on a Tuesday this week as it was a holiday here in Canada yesterday.

It was Victoria Day, or as many affectionately call it, “May 2-4.” Originally, it was always celebrated on Queen Victoria’s actual birthday, which was May 24th. But, in 1952, an amendment to the Statutes of Canada established the celebration of Victoria Day on the Monday preceding May 25, and it remains that way to this day. Of course, we no longer celebrate Queen Victoria; instead, Victoria Day is the day on which we celebrate the sovereign—in this case, King Charles—even though it’s not his actual birthday.
